Splitcoast Sketch Challenge {Chic Boutique}

This was the weekly Wednesday Card Sketch from Splitcoast Stampers. I have only participated in a few challenges so far, but when one catches my eye, I jump into it.

The card base here is Rose Red. I layered it with Pretty in Pink and Whisper White. The Pink panel is cut to 3 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ and the White is 3 1/2″ x 5″. I popped it up with Stampin Dimensionals and added a strip of Pretty in Pink cut with the Scallop Trim Border Punch along the left side of the card.

I stamped the bird cage from Chic Boutique on the Whisper White and then stamped it again on White scrap in Versamark and heat embossed it with Black Embossing Powder. Then, I colored it in with Stampin Up Markers and attached it to the card with Stampin Dimensionals.

Around the edges of the Whisper White, I also stamped the filigree stamp from Chic Boutique in Pretty in Pink and Rose Red. I love using that stamp as sort of a background stamp!

Underneath the bird cage, as per the sketch, I added a strip of Pretty in Pink that I punched with the Scallop Trim Border Punch and wrapped Black Satin Ribbon through a Large Black Grommet.

Instead of piercing the grommet through the paper, I just folded back the tabs on the underside of the grommet with my Bone Folder. This way, I can use it more like a ribbon slide than a grommet. I looped both ends of the black ribbon through the hole of the grommet and then pulled each end around the back of the card stock, adhering it with SNAIL.

The 5/8″ Basic Brad in White was sponged with Pretty in Pink ink, then stamped with the filigree image in Rose Red ink. Next, I dipped the brad head in Glassy Glaze and heated, repeating once to get a more even coating of shine. I slipped that into the grommet hole and put a Glue Dot behind the brad to keep it from sliding around.

Lots of Dots and Hearts Valentine’s Day Card

This card uses the Dot Dot Dot Stamp from the latest Mini Catalog. The base is chocolate chip card stock, stamped with the Dot Dot Dot stamp, also in Chocolate chip ink.

Using the Top Note Die and the Big Shot, I die cut Very Vanilla card stock and then stamped it with A Happy Heart sentiment in chocolate chip ink. Next, I put the Top Note through the Crimper and sponged Real Red ink around the edges with a Sponge Dauber.

The real red heart was made using the Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit layered with Very Vanilla card stock stamped with the Dot Dot Dot stamp in chocolate chip. I then added a Real Red Epoxy Brad in the center (with the Cropadile) and adhered it to the base with Stampin Dimensionals.

Finally, I knotted some Real Red 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon around the Top Note and attached it to the card base with Stampin Dimensionals.
